The House in Gramercy Park Ratings and Reviews
What a lovely place. This old Carriage house has a staff that appears to love working here! They really aim to please. We sat upstairs where it is quiter and more intimate. The food if very good as are the drinks. This is a special place for anyone who likes good food, good surroundings and good drinks!
Fantastic experience. Best service I've ever had. Will come back here many times in the future for dinners, drinks, special occasions. We were treated like royalty. The food was out of this world. Best scallops I've ever had. My husband's steak was cooked right, seared perfectly and seasoned deliciously. Hamachi crudo was delicate and bright with creative citrus pairings and melted in my mouth. Cocktails were creative and fresh. Short ribs were out of this world yummy. You'll pay for an amazing meal here but it's worth it. Server was warm, funny, attentive, generous and helpful.
Where's the lobster?! I took my mother here for a belated Mother's Day brunch. She ordered the burger which was delicious. I ordered the "Lobster" club. There was barely any lobster! It was mostly diced red onions in a minced lobster spread. I pointed it out to the waiter and he said he would check with the kitchen. He came back and told me "that's how the entire spread is." That's not a solution for the lack of lobster meat on a $22 sandwich. The service was also very slow.
A lovely restaurant, but it was Mother's day and though we had a reservation we had to wait 1/2 hour for our table. Once seated it took a while before anyone approached us. After another 45 minutes we asked the waiter for the basket of bread as stated on the menu. He forgot. The manager came over to us and apologized for the delay. The appetizers showed up after an hour. Both kids had commitments and one by one they had to leave. We were comped food for one of them who never got it, but needless to say the experience was not the Mother's day I wanted as I sat fretting about where was the food was and if the kids could stay and it was ruined when they both had to leave.
It was my husbands birthday. I had left the note when I made the reservation requesting for a nice table.
I also called them on that day specifically reminding them and that I would like a lit candle when I order dessert. I was told by the person on the phone that they had made note of everything and it would be taken care of.
When we reached there, they offered us the table right next to the front door, and never bothered to bring the candle either when we ordered dessert.
I was highly disappointed with their service and the complete lack of regard of my requests for such a special occasion.
I didn't expect something like this from such a reputable restaurant.
They need to make sure they correct this so they don't spoil the experience for someone else.
My wife had the butternut squash soup and I had the duck salad for a starter. Both were outstanding. For main courses, she had the scallops, which she loved and I had a lasagna, which sounds plain it it was delicious as well. For dessert I ended with a cup of coffee and the red velvet cheesecake. I think that was the highlight of the meal.
The upstairs was very quiet and intimate and the service was attentive.
A very good experience.
Lovely location and great looking restaurant. Waiting for table at the 2nd floor bar was a pleasant surprise. However, table service was embarrassingly bad. When food finally arrived, it was obvious the plated food had been sat waiting for our server to pick them up. Food was dried out. Expect much,much better from a place charging the prices it does. I suspect we hit very bad luck with service and overall management that night. But one would expect to have your best staff on a busy Saturday night. I might try this place one more time.
We enjoyed the intimacy of the restaurant and the food, with the exception of an overcooked dish of lasagna, was very good. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive though not fully professional. Our waiter opened a fine bottle of wine by simply pulling the cork through the wrapping, leaving jagged pieces of foil to pour the wine through. The room was snug and cozy, yet noise levels were low enough for conversation. Overall a positive experience.
I chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday dinner and what a disappointing evening it turned out to be! I chose The House because it was listed in a very exclusive "Anniversary Worthy" category by Zagat's (along with such truly anniversary worthy stand-outs as Le Bernardin, Le Coucou, Del Posto, Rainbow Room and River Café). While the food and the setting were fine (but not better than that), the service was atrocious. When we arrived, we were shocked to be the only people in the restaurant, in addition to a family that was finishing up its meal. We were offered seats at in the bar area (little bar tables without table clothes, high bar stools), although the entire dining floor upstairs was empty. We were served mainly by the busboy who didn't know where to put the cutlery and was very reluctant to give us plates for dishes we wanted to share, suggesting that we could eat right out of the serving plates that he put in the middle of the table. The waitress who served wine to my husband poured it into his glass without giving him the standard option of tasting it first. This restaurant has a feel of a neighborhood diner and certainly is not worth the high prices that it charges. Most certainly, it is not a place for a special occasion. Stay away!
I had my boyfriend's birthday dinner here. They were all so attentive. The hostess was the so friendly and approachable. Our waiter impressed me by knowing about my special request that i put in the the OpenTable booking. The food is great and very creative. However be prepared to spend $$$. However for the special occasion its totally worth it. I'm looking for to come back here and have a glass of wine on the first floor of the restaurant. It has a beautiful fireplace and historic vibe. Overall great and memorable experience.
I made a reservation for Valentines Day. My Date and I were seated right next to the bathroom and could smell an awful smell the entire dinner. Lost my appetite. $100 a person + a $100 bottle of wine was a steep price to pay for a ruined valentines day dinner with my date.
